I am looking to get 305/70/16 Duratracs and was wondering if these would work for them http://www.summitracing.com/parts/PCW-98-6873/

I am a novice, and the "backspacing" aspect of wheel shopping is very confusing. Also, would I need to get wheel spacers?

I have a bone stock 2011 Sport with 3.73 gears and I am tired of looking at the stock steelies and Honda Civic looking tires that it came with.

Thanks in advance :)

Backspacing looks fine. Anything less than 4.5 is normally recommended. Why you choosing 16"?
I figured since I'm going with 33" it would ride and look better. Again, I am clueless when it comes to tires so it isn't set in stone. Would a bigger wheel be better? Also, do I need spacers?

Steel wheels won't bolt up to the Jk without a wheel spacer or some grinding of the brake caliper. We don't recommend either of these.

If you like the soft 8 look I'd recommend looking into the MB72 or Level 8 tracker. These will bolt right put without modification and they'll save you some weight as well. (gas prices are headed above $4 again...:jawdrop: ) Give us a ring if we can help you with a package. We guarantee the lowest delivered price and we give JKO members $50.00 off their total instantly when they purchase any 5 tires for their jeep. All you need to do is call in your order and mention this site.

If you'd like to speak with a fellow JK owner call TC at 1.888.459.4080 ext 51826. TC has a 2010 JKU with 37" tire and wheels. He knows the fitment well and would be happy to explain all your options.

I ordered from Discount Tires Direct. I went with MB72s and 33x12.5x15 Duratracs. There was a $50 off coupon yesterday. Would I have been able to get an additional $50 off?

If you purchased a 5 wheel and 5 tire package Monday (through Discount Tire Direct) and you mentioned this website you should have received $150.00 off instantly. PM us your order number and we can check it for you.
